Science Site Environmental Improvement Scheme (SSEI)
The external environment on the Science Site is generally in poor condition so the University has developed a programme for environmental enhancement referred to as the Science Site Environmental Improvement Scheme (SSEI).
There are 4 major components to this scheme:
- To give the whole exterior of the Science Site a level of coherence and improvement (for example in paving) and providing public art.
- To green the Science Site by providing additional and more appropriate vegetation and trees.
- Improving security in the evenings when people are walking as well as improvements in energy efficiency by providing appropriate low energy lighting.
- Delivering on our green travel plan including the reduction of parking around the centre of the Science Site.
As the environment of the Science Site is enhanced there will be far more trees and other greenery planted than previously and, in addition, far more than are required simply to obtain planning permission.
Consultation has taken place with all departments on the Science Site and professional horticultural staff at the Botanic Gardens. This will ensure a coherent and appropriate planting scheme which will go a long way towards improving the working environment for all our staff and students in and around the Science Site.
The University is absolutely committed to biodiversity and environmental enhancements in all sorts of ways and further information can be found on the 'Greenspace' section of the University's website.
